Decibel Magazine premieres track of the UK death metal band LIVE BURIAL

Live Burial‘s album has received a terrific response so far with loads of reviews calling it one of the best death metal albums of the year. We even announced new merch and LPs for the release since then whose mockups we’ve included here. Decibel Magazine premiered a smashing song that can be found AT THIS LINK. Excerpt –

“Live Burial, a death metal quintet hailing from England, reek of old-school brutality on Unending Futility, their first album in four years. Meeting somewhere in the middle of classic, thrashy death metal and crawling death/doom, Live Burial avoid the trap of sounding like a throwback band while embodying the best of the genre.”
